Chicago Science Fest 2019 “Science Expo Day”

Saturday, May 18 @ 10:00am – 5:30pm
$30 (students $20)
The Merchandise Mart - 12th floor 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza 60654 Chicago , IL

The Chicago Science Fest is a great addition to the city’s festival scene.  It’s for adults, but students are welcome, and includes a full day of talks and hands-on demos with expert researchers from universities, museums, and national labs. They’ll share their latest findings, and answer your questions, on a wide variety of science topics you’re curious about.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are hot topics in science and business. At Science Fest, you’ll hear from the experts about its great possibilities and what to worry about. What do Chicagoans need to know about Climate Change? How can brain implants control prosthetic arms? How to track thousands of individual sharks, giraffes, whales, and other endangered species just by their spots. Plus, bring a superhero fan to hear the science of Wonder Woman versus Captain Marvel!

Feed your curiosity on these ideas, hands-on demos, and much more at Science Expo Day on Saturday, May 18th during Chicago Science Fest.
